hello there lovely friends! how are you doing and how has the week started? first of all, i have to thank you for all the kind messages regarding my last post. this has become frequent, but from time to time i feel the need to share what’s going on here, and sometimes it’s not always good things or pleasant moments. other for one reason or the other, and though i believe that blogging should be about a good mood, inspiration and stories, i also want this to be real and the truth is that reality has its so-so or down moments as well. the good thing is that whenever i write something that is more personal than the usual, i know that i will reach some of you, because you feel related to what i wrote or just because you are that good friend that takes the time to write a few nice words. and if you blog like me, you’ll know that this means so much to whoever is reading what you wrote. and now good things (no, not any news from my laptop or hard drive, neither have been saved so far, because no one called yet), but a good and beautiful design blog from the uk, that actually comes from norway!
“my name is marianne and i was born in norway a few decades ago. when it comes to style i have stayed true to my roots as my fascination with the nordic style and scandinavian design won’t seem to go away despite having lived in the uk for almost 5 years now. i am married to a tall, blonde and blue eyed swede and my mother is danish. so i’ve covered scandinavia pretty well! we have opened a little web shop that will be selling nordic brands that are not so well known in the uk yet.”
you know i have a thing for scandinavian blogs and general nordic style blogs that often are written in a language i don’t speak, nor understand a single word. but fortunately this is no the case! nordic bliss is written in english by the lovely marianne and it’s filled with beautiful and clean images exactly inspired in the nordic style and scandinavian design. she shares bits of her own home, but she also shares the work of other artists that she admires, blogs that she reads (i actually got hooked to this one, because of her suggestion), diy projects and so much more!

as marianne stated, they opened a little web shop and my, oh my, it’s filled with gorgeous objects, textiles, accessories and furniture! i think that i might be successfl if i ask her to open a second shop here in portugal, because i know a lot of people who would love some of her things at home! though we are much more latin, appreciate colours and our homes have much more sun, because we’re located almost in the south of europe, we do appreciate all this clean look and straight lines. but it’s curious because i found several objects on their shop that actually made me remind of morocco, like this tray, these bowls and this candle holder. and i must confess that my favourite is this lamp!
so if you are in need of some new blogs to read, some spring design inspiration for the next weeks, i’ll suggest going through nordic bliss! marianne is a very nice lady and will inspire you for sure! have a lovely day my friends!
